We are running a free platform which costs a lot. The majority of these costs are currently being covered by investors who believe in our mission to connect people locally.
In the second quarter of 2018 we initiated plans to cover parts of our costs through advertising. Today we host ads via two features: Picture Feed Ads and the Digital Ad Column.

We might develop further features in the future in order to become financially sustainable.
Please be aware: we do NOT sell any data of any kind. We only use your data to show you less advertising. If Spotify for example tells us they want to target students in our app, if you tell us that you are an employee we will not show this ad to you. Spotify however does not get access to any information about any user. They just know that students will see their ads within Jodel.
